iPhone 8 lcd flex compatible with iPhone 7?
Hi, I have a question: Is the lcd flex cable from the iPhone 7 compatible with the iPhone 8?
I tested is working perfectly!!
From what I've been able to tell looking at the connectors the LCD may be compatible but the digitizer is not.
iPhone 8 LCD SCREEN install in iPhone 7, the phone works but touch function is not working. So it is not compatible.
If you want to break your phone, put a 7 screen on an 8.
This thread is really worrying, stick to the same model screen, it is really better to play it safe then to make a $400+ phone damaged.
Unless you don’t mind taking a risk of damaging the phone as said by others the screen connector on the board will get damaged due to different size of ribbon cable plugs on the screen itself..
Why would anyone care so much as to why doing this would cause such critical issues. There is one thing about these two models screens that have little to no difference in them, therefore 100% optional on which to buy for your phone model and that is the price. I could see such questions being asked if the iphone 8 screen was significantly higher than the 7. Or vise versa. But they are identical in price so, why would you ever give a $@$* if the connectors were the same? Just buy the appropriate screen and it will never matter if they are cross compatible. I get that maybe you didn't have the correct one. But get amazon then and tomorrow you'll have the correct screen for your model.
